Alcohol abuse is not only responsible for 5.3% of the total deaths in the world, but also has a substantial impact on neurological and memory disabilities throughout the population. One extensively studied brain area involved in cognitive functions is the hippocampus. Evidence in several rodent models has shown that ethanol produces cognitive impairment in hippocampal-dependent tasks and that the damage is varied according to the stage of development at which the rodent was exposed to ethanol and the dose. To the authors’ knowledge, there is a biomarker for cognitive processes in the hippocampus that has not been evaluated in association with memory impairment by alcohol administration. This biomarker is called Sharp Wave Ripples which are synchronous neuronal population events that are well known to be involved in memory consolidation. Methodologies for facilitation or automatic identification of ripples and their analysis have been reported for a wider bandwidth than Sharp Wave Ripples. This review is focused on communicating the state-of-the art about the relationship between alcohol, memory consolidation and ripple activity as well as the use of the main methodologies to identify SWRs automatically.
